Intensive In-Home Support

KKAT’s intensive in-home support service works with families towards ensuring that children and young people can live safely at home. We aspire to help children, young people and their families achieve their aspiration of a safe, nurturing, and cohesive family home.

We believe that growing up with family, whenever safe and possible, serves a child’s best interests. We believe that supporting a family to meet their child’s needs is the most effective way of securing a child’s emotional and physical safety. Additionally, we believe that families want to meet their children’s core needs of safety, security, belonging and identity. We exist to help children and families achieve this.

Intervention activities include:


      • Parental coaching and support
      • Weekly planning and family journey mapping
      • Positive behaviour management
      • Safety planning and implementation
      • Critical incident debriefing and support
      • Transportation
      • Brokerage
      • Mediation
      • Strengthening cultural and family connection
      • Health and well-being support and lifestyle coaching

Family Placement Support

YCSS recognises the need to support carers of children and young people in foster and kinship care. We have also identified that traditional supportive carer agencies aren’t always in a position to provide intensive and specialist support. In response to this need, the KKAT program offers intensive and specialist support to foster and kinship carers.

Intervention activities include:


      • Psycho-education and appropriate behaviour management strategies to address the family’s individual needs
      • Support for implementing behaviour management strategies
      • Education on the effects of childhood trauma and trauma-related behaviours
      • Education on attachment and attachment-building activities
      • Practical in-home support for carers between 3 – 60 hours per week

Meaningful Family Contact

YCSS has reimagined the way supervised family contact is conducted. KKAT’s supervised family contact service offers parenting strategies, attachment-building activities and structure during family contact to prompt a safe, meaningful experience. It aims to develop a lasting connection for children and young people with their immediate and extended families.

Intervention activities include:

      • Debriefing for young people and children during transport
      • Education in understanding the importance of family contact and providing behaviour management strategies for identified post-contact behaviours


YCSS accepts referrals for its KKAT program from the Department of Child Safety, Youth Justice and Multicultural Affairs.

We offer flexible service delivery. We can provide practical in-home support for carers between 3 – 60 hours per week we and are available to work weekends.
